John Harbaugh will face questions about his job security, but even if those prove unfounded for the time being, the Ravens face a steep uphill climb to contention. "The biggest thing we need to do is get healthy".

Head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers looks on from the sidelines in the second quarter during the game against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field on December 31, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

And the Ravens couldn't convert in the red zone, settling for field goals. They haven't made the playoffs under coach John Harbaugh after starting the season with four wins or fewer in their first nine games.

The Ravens (4-5) scored only one touchdown in their third straight defeat, managing two field goals in the first half while falling behind 14-6. That put Baltimore in a hole from which it could not recover.

Harbaugh is signed through only this season, so it's not a surprise that he's in a win-or-else situation; the surprise would be if the Ravens said goodbye to Harbaugh before the end of the regular season.

While the loss was devastating to the Ravens, they do play four of their final seven games at home. If they have playoff aspirations, they'd better hope they start winning and Pittsburgh and Cincinnati go on a losing streak.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco showed up at practice this week without the beard he's worn for the first eight weeks of the season. Antonio Brown has found his stride again.

The defense followed by forcing the game's first three-and-out, but the Baltimore offense failed to sustain the momentum.

The NFL's most dominant defense has suddenly become vulnerable to the pass, particularly the underneath routes that elongate drives and turn short throws into big gainers.

"It was tough, it was insane tough, especially with Michele and the closeness we have with her", Roethlisberger said last Sunday.

He ranked fifth at the position with 25.8 FanDuel points on Sunday. "We know what our standard is, and that isn't it".

After reporters had asked all of their questions, Harbaugh ended his media session with a closing statement, which has never happened before. He said Sunday he wasn't concerned with being fired.

"I've never been somebody that ever anxious about keeping a job", Harbaugh said after the game, via ProFootballTalk. "It's always been, for me, (about) doing the job".
